In summary, the Snow Load Calculator to ASCE 7-16:

• Calculates both balanced and unbalanced snow loads on sloped and flat roofs.
• Takes into account the ground snow load, surface roughness, roof properties (roof pitch and angle) and the thermal condition of the building.
• Provides calculations on for snow drift loads on lower roofs or roof projections.

## Steel

### Steel Joist Calculator to SJI 100-2020 incorporates LH-series joists

Now, you can design with LH-series steel joists using the Steel Joists (ASD) Calculator to SJI 100-2020.

Longspan (LH) steel joists are designed to handle longer span loads and higher loads, offering structural engineers more flexibility during the project scoping and designing process.

### Cold-Formed Steel Calculator to AS/NZS 4600:2018 includes Rondo Wall Stud Track sections

If you're designing with cold-formed steel (CFS) in Australia, you can now consider Rondo® Wall Stud Track sections in your design.

This means that as an engineer and designer, you now have more options to design lightweight and durable structures for your projects, especially for internal plasterboard walls and specific external walls.
